TransPlus is an exciting new pilot of an NHS Gender Dysphoria Clinic (for adults 17 & over) integrated into existing services at 56 Dean Street, an award-winning sexual health and HIV service in Soho, the heart of London’s LGBT+ community.

Set to run for 3 years, the TransPlus pilot integrates specialist gender care with a range of sexual health & wellbeing services and is the first clinic of its kind in England.

TransPlus will offer flexible, tailored support options, assessment and diagnosis of gender dysphoria, hormone therapy (including prescriptions and monitoring), voice therapy, as well as referrals to surgical providers. The service will work to NHS England’s national service specification for gender dysphoria services.
